The thought of disposing of the ISS so soon has led to some speculative “alternative uses” for the ISS; one of the most outlandish being the conversion of the ISS into some kind of International Space Ship, retrofitting the station with rockets and sending it to the Moon and/or Mars to act as a manned mothership for planetary activities. Although this excites my science fiction imagination, this possibility seems unlikely (it would be cool though…).
– not specultive, sensible! it’s already bloody up there, do something else with it *please*
stupid, nay criminal, is spending fucking trillions of dollars only to burn the thing up..
